• Bret Hart Says Goldberg Should Be In The Hall Of Shame
It almost seems like WWF Legend Bret Hart only has one topic to talk about these days, which is the botched Superkick by Goldberg during the WCW Starrcade 1999 main event, that eventually led to the end of Bret’s professional wrestling career a few weeks later.
The entire WWF Survivor Series 1997 Montreal Screwjob incident, which was pretty much his #1 topic ever since, isn’t even mentioned anymore nowadays.
The Hitman had the following to say in a new interview with Inside The Ropes:
“I regret that I got injured by a guy that couldn’t wrestle and has no business being in a Hall of Fame. He should be in the Hall of Shame.”
Here’s also what Bret shared as part of his ‘Confessions Of A Hitman’ series in October 2020:
“Goldberg was a gorilla. Goldberg was a guy that nobody seemed to have taught how wrestling really works. He seemed to think he could just pick a guy up and just slam him through the mat as hard as you could and that was good wrestling.
But I always liked Bill as a person. His wrestling, his workrate was 0/10. Like, everything he did hurt, everything! He could tie up with you and hurt you. He’d tie up with himself and hurt himself!”
However, let’s go back 5 years to June 9th 2015, where Hart posted a photo of him and WCW Legend Bill Goldberg on his Twitter account.

Apparently Bret’s unhealthy obsession, hate and anger with Goldberg only started after the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion returned to WWE as a part-timer / special attraction in the fall of 2016 and even managed to win the Universal Championship on 2 occasions, along with making millions of dollars for his Saudi Arabia PPV matches. At least that’s how it looks like.
